Geoff Connors and familyTo my uncle Roy and cousins Linda, Joan, Laura and Ted - so sorry for your loss. Bernice was one of a kind and much loved by everyone who where lucky enough to know her. My youngest son Ben stills misses being well fed at lunch during his days at Oakridge when he would slip away from school for a brief visit with Roy and Bernice. Always such great hosts. There is comfort in knowing that the strong Connors bond will continue - keeping Bernice's memory alive and comfort us all as life moves forward.
Elaine Bitz (along with Doris and Craig)We wish you peace as you say goodbye to a truly lovely lady. She always had a smile for the Plantation Road crew - along with delicious fresh bread. As you share your memories, we hope you find a smile and maybe a chuckle as you remember a very special lady.
